Today, I’m going to keep it simple. I borrowed this idea from Ashley, over at The Geeky Mama Blog. Check out her posts, just click on the link and head right over! So without further delay, here is 50 about me. 1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?  Not that I am aware of. Though, when […]

Knorr Alfredo Pasta Sauce Mix

After a long day at work, I HATE coming home and having to sort out dinner. I can’t imagine spending an hour or more, pulling ingredients just to make a family dinner. The menu idea is helping with that plan. But we needed to take it one step further for a simple, easy and convenient […]

The Great Flyer Extravaganza!

After much debate, we decided to allow the minions to get a small paper route, it couldn’t be that bad right? Here’s the deal, the flyers get delivered to your door, you package them and then deliver them to all 166 houses on the route.. and all for $0.21 per house. I laughed! It will […]

5 Things I Didn’t Know

When my second child arrived, I was excited for a son. But nothing could prepare me for the adventure I was about to embark. Someone really should hand out a checklist at the hospital. The nurses all staring at you as you swaddle that little baby and prepare for this new chapter in you life. […]

Dear Daughter

A letter to my daughter. From the very first moment that I saw your little face and held you so tight in my arms, I knew that having a daughter was one of the most precious gifts that I would ever receive. You were a sweet baby. You made everyone smile. You brought so much […]

The Great Sock Mystery

I know that matching socks on laundry day seems so trivial in the big scheme of things, but it has to be one of my least favorite things to do. I was always struggling to find those missing socks. I’m not sure who was the worse culprit, the invisible sock monster or my bratty children […]

The Journey of a Life Time

I wanted to take the time to tell you about the biggest struggle our family was faced with in 2015. For those that know me, personally, I want to thank you all so much for your continued support and words of encouragement throughout the year. I can honestly say, I don’t know where would have […]

Fast & Easy Pot Pie

We stumbled across this great idea, when Ethan decided he wanted a voice in the kitchen. He found it online one night and was delighted  to helped us make it the that night. We have made it with tuna, can chicken and left-over chicken from dinner.  We prefer the chicken version. This has become a […]

What’s For Dinner?

I absolutely hate getting this text from my husband everyday. The hell if I know what’s for dinner? I’m at work and you are NAPPING – you figure it out! This is a text battle that we have multiple times a week. We’re famous for “forgetting” to take something out of the freezer.  This trademark will not […]
